Thursday Three – 2/3 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Hello? Anyone there? It’s me, Crooked Eyebrow. I hope you remember me, seeing how it has been so very long since I posted here.  I’m here to run down Thursday Three with all you fine gorgeous people.  Have I told you just how wonderful you are? Not lately you say? Well you are. You know […]

Fortunately, I can usually carve out kid free time to work out, be it during nap time, or in the evening after my son goes to bed.  My husband is really great about letting me run off to the gym for a few hours in the evening (thanks, honey!). But, there are days where my […]

This week, my family is on vacation in The Outer Banks, North Carolina. Before we left, I made a promise to myself that I was NOT going to let this vacation derail my triathlon training and eating. That being said, I am on VACATION! Time to relax a little bit and enjoy life. Go with […]

My seventh grade year I wanted to go out for the junior high school basketball team.  I didn’t know anyone at the first open gym I went to.  I didn’t go back that year. My mom found my senior prom date and MADE ME GO because I had no date and didn’t want to go […]

Good morning, everyone! I’ve been thinking recently that it’s almost July. Which means that half the year is already almost gone. Can you believe it?? I feel like it was just January! This year is flying! Some of you have been here for a while and might remember our “Rethink Your Shrink” challenge, which we […]

It seems like running is all the rage right now! And nothing makes me happier than to see Sisters (and Brothers) out there lacing up their running shoes and hitting the pavement. Running is good for you, it’s fun (once you get past those first seemingly impossible weeks of C25K), and can lead you down […]

Alright, I really feel like my kids are the only kids still in school. Jacob doesn’t get out until tomorrow (thank you 53 inches of snow in February!!), so we are ITCHING to get our summer plans started. SUMMER!!! Summer means so many different things to different people. Maybe it means travel or cookouts or […]

So yeah, I’m the Sister who not only will be doing the half marathon with the rest of my Team Shrinking Jeans teammates this weekend (woot woot!), but I am the craziest of all for deciding to bring my entire family with me.  The crazy part isn’t that we’ll be together, no the crazy part is […]

Do you ever wish you could go back and tell your past self things that you now know? Jump in your time-traveling machine, zip back to 1988, and tell yourself that your bangs really do NOT need to be 8 inches high? Or that layering two pairs of socks and tight-rolling your jeans will NEVER […]

Alright. I’m going to be totally honest. Sometimes I think about getting plastic surgery. Have you ever thought about that? I think you’d be hard pressed to find a woman who hasn’t thought about it at least once in their lives. I don’t think I would ever actually HAVE plastic surgery, but that doesn’t mean […]

Hello.  My name is April, and I have a history of yo-yo dieting.  I’ve gained weight, lost weight, gained it all back and then some, lost more, gained it again, lost it again.  Sound familiar? One of my problems way back when was that when I gained weight, I told myself that I could lose […]

Most times when I look in the mirror, my eyes automatically gravitate to what I perceive as “wrong” with me.  Big hips.  Mommy muffin top.  Wide ass.  Tired eyes.  Gray hairs. I mean, if I was to list everything that I think is wrong, we might be here all day. Why do we do that?  […]

Here at the Sisterhood, we are all about changing and evaluating our actions and behaviors. This week, we want to switch it up a bit. We are in the process of rethinking some things around here and we want some feedback from the most important people, the elite… namely, YOU! What are three things you […]

About 6 months ago, I decided that I was going to switch from standard groceries to organic.  I buy organic almost exclusively now and have no plans on turning back. One side effect, though, is that we’ve had to replace some of our best loved processed foods with their closest organic counterpart.  Some have been […]

You read the title of this post and thought personal chef, right? I wish. No, I’m talking about the little kitchen gadgets and helpers that make this whole healthy eating thing easier. Personally, I’m kind of obsessed with gizmos and doo-dads and I am not allowed to watch infomercials or anything of the like. I […]
